Accidentally discovered during the boozy revelry of a Chinese pin factory’s New Year's party, acupuncture has since developed into both a potent alternative medicine and a popular celebrity-Jeopardy category. Today’s Groupon gives you a pain-free way to stay pain free: for $20, you get $40 worth of acupuncture services at Avecinia Wellness Center on Spruce Avenue. Acupuncture sessions start at $40 for 15–20 minutes.
Your customized treatment at Avecinia begins with a consultation with Dr. Hayat, an American Board of Internal Medicine–certified physician who trained with the Academy of Pain Research in Medical Acupuncture. After determining your health history and settling a philosophical filibuster debate regarding cotton vs. corduroy, Dr. Hayat will begin the ancient healing treatment. Acupuncture works by inserting tiny filiform needles into specific pathways of energy flow called meridians. The needles target energy blockages to balance the body's vital life force, known as Qi by some and Jolt Cola by others. The needles will maintain their balletic en pointe in your body for 15 to 20 minutes until yin and yang are once again doo-wopping in handsome harmony.
Research from the National Institute of Health shows that acupuncture can provide pain relief and improved muscular functions, reduce stress, improve the immune system, and increase overall energy. You can buy up to three Groupons for yourself and multiples as gifts, so you can finally get your stunt double’s back pain treated as recompense for all those times he made you look cool at the office and supermarket. Call ahead to schedule an appointment at Avecinia Wellness Center.
